Sister Beth Wright to take Perpetual Vows on Sunday
Four sisters will celebrate the Profession of Perpetual Vows with the Sisters of Providence on Sunday, June 30, during Mass. They are Sisters Deborah Campbell, Laura Parker, Patty Wallace and Beth Wright. During the next four days, we’ll be highlighting one sister each day, as they come to the end of their discernment journey.
Sister Beth Wright
Sister Beth Wright is currently the assistant administrator at the Wabash Valley Health Center, also known as St. Ann Medical and Dental Services, a ministry of the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods. The clinic, which was founded in 1997, serves the poor and sick within Vigo County and surrounding communities.
Sister Beth entered the congregation Sept. 18, 2003, from St. Jude Parish, Indianapolis. She has a Bachelor’s degree in human services from Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College.
About her path to become a woman religious, Sister Beth said, “This journey has been and continues to be life-changing, life-giving and life-challenging. With my choice to engage this path, I have been blessed with personal and spiritual growth.”
When asked about ministry and mission, she said, “The questions for me are ‘Where is Providence calling me or us in this time and place? What are the urgent needs in this time? How am I or we being called by Providence to respond to the needs in this time?’” Sister Beth has answered the call to mission and ministry with her current work at the Wabash Valley Health Center.
Sister Beth feels that Mother Theodore’s influence has always been there for her and that her life, spirit and energy has spoken to her since she began this journey to become a sister.
Congratulations, Sister Beth, on taking Perpetual Vows this Sunday.
